“I began training in anthropology; I was attracted to its traditional emphasis on long-term, deep engagements with people and place and, especially, learning the local languages. For me, humanistic aims trump any interest in illustrating concepts such as culture or culture-in-flux.”

    MANAKAMANA

    Stephanie Spray, Pacho Velez Nepal, 2013

A serene project that experiments with form while staying powerfully humane.
